Super Talent, a well-known supplier of premium flash and DRAM products, has announced a new series of USB 3.0 flash drives with DRAM cache that speeds-up their performance. According to the manufacturer, the DRAM cache can improve small block random performance by up to three times. The new drives are around 30% more expensive than traditional.

"We have made the first, fastest, hardware encrypted, and most affordable USB flash 3.0 flash drives, now with the Express RAM cache, we are offering affordable cache support on USB 3.0. Adding RAM Cache to our USB 3.0 Express Drive line-up raises the bar we have establish with our first three USB 3.0 products and reiterates our commitment and leadership in the USB 3.0 space," said CH Lee, chief operating officer at Super Talent.

The new series of Super Talent flash drives uses USB 3.0 interconnection and is available in 16GB and 32GB as well as 32GB and 64GB with 32MB cache versions. The caching system is projected to boost small block random performance by up to 300%.

According to SuperTalent, by adding a caching system, the Express RAM cache drive can now write these same files 260% faster; instead of taking 13 seconds, this transfer now takes less than 5 seconds. As the file size decreases and the file count increase, this time savings becomes even more apparent, the company said.

Unfortunately, Super Talent did not reveal any actual performance characteristics of the USB 3.0 Express RAM cache drives.

I think it's overkill but I always welcome innovation. If they could make the price difference fit under a 20% premium, I'd buy it.
